National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is a national campaign that raises awareness about disability employment issues and celebrates the many and varied contributions of America's workers with disabilities. The theme for 2019 is "The Right Talent, Right Now."

NDEAM's roots go back to 1945 when Congress enacted a law declaring the first week in October each year "National Employ the Physically Handicapped Week."

We talked locally about disability employment awareness month with Jennifer Gorman from Itasca Life Options and Cindy from MDI – MN Diversified Industries.
